rather than start a new project, i pulled out this one...scrappy 9 patches. swapped these for the inchie project as my leaders/enders to see if i can get enough put together to get this flimsy together, quilted (or tied) and done. this will be a snowball/9patch quilt or maybe bonnie's rickrack pattern, not sure yet. scrappy quilts are so fun; there are so many memories in these little pieces. no, i didn't do all of these yesterday! these are quick to piece as there is no matchy/matchy, just pulling squares from the stack and sewing 'em together. true serendipity, and for sure i've got plenty of material to make this and probably 100 more just like it. **** did see a glimpse of the sun earlier this AM but overcast again. no matter; busy morning and then work, and for me it's friday, yay!

i am making progress on this project. left to finish this section (1/4 of total) are 5 blocks and a few flying geese strips. i can see i need more dark brown squares. there is a large feathered star block that fits on the extreme left so i should choose a dark brown for that one, giving it some balance. really enjoying the actual process and i have a collection of great blocks in various sizes also. **** aside from trying to stay dry here in drenching maine today, i'm working on a summer wallhanging plus quilting on my pinwheel. i also have some blocks that need to get assembled into a flimsy so might tackle that as well. ***not sure if it's the weather or just inspiration from other blogs, but in the mood to start some new small projects. though i really wish i had a much bigger spaceand really do need a bit more, the lack of it sometimes keeps me from having too many in-process things lying around, always a good thing!
